Day 14 - Harvest & Weight

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster It’s been a long wait !!! But time has finally come !! Just finished trimming up and weighing up, I did notice on 1 or 2 buds a little bud rot well what looked like bud rot basically little clump of cobweb inside the bud, but I just scraped it off and the bud looks okay, I broke each bud up to look inside and it only seemed to be on a couple Final dry weight came to 68g (2.4oz) this is the highest yield I’ve had from a single plant ! Not just that it’s the highest yield I’ve had from a grow so I’m more than happy with 2.4oz from a water only no nutrient grow !

zenmaster Thanks !! You know it ! Bless up 🔥✌🏽

Day 147 - Week 21 from soil - CUT DOWN

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster The long awaited journey has finally come to its near end !! I was going to wait a little longer however last week a fellow grower pointed out that she was starting to foxtail, all lower bud sites have turned majority of pistils to amber and trichomes are looking pretty milky Cut down now to prevent anymore stress or try home degradation Hung up in the dry tent with an air purifier on 24/7 Next update will be the harvest and weigh up …

trichometheatre

trichometheatre The second that plant is chopped degradations begin. Even if placed strait into a “no frost” freezer for later extraction. I personally wouldn’t worry about the degree of degradation since THCa degrades to THC according to the kinetic model. Early cannabis stability studies estimated that the THC content in cannabis would decrease at a rate of 3-5 percent per month when kept at room temperature. More recently, estimates have confirmed a 12 percent degradation in THC over the first 100 days of storage, equivalent to a rate of 3-4 percent each month. Researchers found tha average monthly THCA+THC degradation rate to be 2 percent at 20°C and have also created an interactive cannabis stability calculator to better illustrate, and show off, these findings for each cannabinoid across the full experimental temp spectrum. ☮️💚🧬

zenmaster

zenmaster Oh wow that’s crazy up to 12% !! Well I just trimmed her up now and I’ll be posting the next-final update of this grow !

Day 140 - Week 20 from soil

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster Every time I think she’s getting close to harvest she gets fatter If you look at the last photos you can see the top colas are growing more bud sites on top of the main buds Lower bud sites are looking ready but the top buds look like they’re still getting fatter so waiting a little longer before harvest

Mystrain420-@eaegifts

Mystrain420-@eaegifts It’s foxtails, some strains are breed to grow this way others do it from light and heat stress. You should check the trichomes she’s probably ready and letting her continue is degrading the trichomes already finished. Hope this information helps 👍🏾

Mystrain420-@eaegifts

Mystrain420-@eaegifts When it’s only happening to the ones near the light it’s definitely stress

zenmaster

zenmaster Not much change from last weeks update other than a little more fattening and still shooting white pistils out the top Still looks not quite ready yet

DracoBEBO This is an auto?

zenmaster

zenmaster @Draco the seed was sold to me as an auto flower but she didn’t flower by herself so I had to switch the lights to 12-12 in order for her to flower I believe I got sold a photoperiod or a dodgy auto

Day 126 - Week 18 from soil

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster Swipe to end for close up shots This week is just fattening up, she’s gone very purple, buds feel dense and more bud sites are growing out of the top colas and shooting white pistils so still looks like a while to go but top bud sites feel pretty dry and I can’t raise the light any higher so hopefully all will be ok Full water again today and defoliation of dead leaves, about 90% of leaves are gone now and just focusing on fattening the buds

Day 105 - Week 15 from soil

zenmaster

zenmaster This weeks update Most leaves have fallen off now and her remaining leaves are definitely suffering from heat stress But other than that she’s doing well, about 40% of her pistils have turned amber and the buds are still fattening each week

zenmaster Bud sites are looking fatter this week and this week some of her pistils have started to amber id say about 20-30% of them Still got a while to go by the looks of it But so far looking well, defoliate dead leaves again this week

Day 91 - Week 13 from soil

zenmaster

zenmaster Buds are looking much fatter this week, pistils are still very long and white so still got a while left to go but so far she’s looking alright Daily defoliation on dried up dead leaves

Drakii

Drakii Deficiency maybe? Or do they need food? I’m just curious..

zenmaster

zenmaster Nah I’m doing a water only grow like my others, she’s fattening each week it’ll just take some time

Day 77 - Week 11 from soil

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster Finally !! Now that I’ve switched her to 12/12 just over a week ago, she is finally going into flower I believe as she is showing bud sites shooting pistils I have added more plants, tied down her branches to allow more light exposure and better air flow as well as defoliating the dying leaves Hopefully soon her bud sites will start to fatten up, I’m just glad to see her start to flower I was starting to worry, maybe it was a photoperiod seed after all and I got given the wrong one who knows, I’m sticking to 12/12 just because I don’t want going back to 18/6 to trigger her back into veg

Mcmuzzy Monster!

zenmaster

zenmaster Thanks man she’s finally starting to make some progress !!

Day 70 - Week 10 from soil

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster 5 days since I switched to 12/12 schedule and still no signs of flowering yet, there’s a couple of tiny little white pistils at some of the nodes (not all) but other than that not really any sign of budding, hopefully she will flower soon

Day: 65

Day 65 - Lights back on - 12/12 Switch

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster Since my auto has not shown any signs of flowering yet I turned the lights off for 36 hours to trigger faster flowering I have now changed the light schedule to 12/12 in hopes that she starts flowering sooner I have also applied another plant bend to her top cola

Day: 63

Day 63 - Week 9 from soil - Light Switch

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster STILL NO SIGN OF FLOWERING AT ALL !! So we’re now on week 9 with 0 signs of flowering and she’s almost out grown the height of the tent so I had to apply a plant bend at the very top She was meant to be an auto flower but I feel like if she was she would’ve started some signs of flowering now I read online by switching the light off for 36 hours before going into 12/12 it can help trigger the plant into flowering faster so I have just turned the light off and I plan on switching it back after 36 hours and then putting the light schedule on 12/12 in hopes that she starts to flower

sparkie What type of clips are those? Used to train the plant?

Mr.Tee

Mr.Tee Man she’s really nice an tall I would assume she can pop her pistols at anytime now but that light switch should flip her an she looks to be photo but maybe this ones just took a lil extra veg time or her flower gene timer is broken lol but she’s big so at least she’ll be a big yielder from wut it looks like is this the only seed her kind u had..? Maybe run a second one to see if it’s just this odd ball that’s a lil late for flower.. she’s nice tho I can’t wait to see her buds form when she does go into flower who knows maybe she’ll just take off in early flower an catch up 🤷🏻‍♂️

Day 56 - Week 8 from soil

a year ago

zenmaster

zenmaster I honestly have no idea what’s happening with this plant :/ She’s on week 8 now and still isn’t showing any signs of going into flower which is concerning for an auto flower She’s still growing taller and branching out, so tall that I’ve had to add a plant bends to the very top as she’s almost touching the light I’m not sure what’s going, I’m going to give it another week and if still nothing I’m going to change the light schedule Any thoughts on what’s happening here ??

HeAd StasH

HeAd StasH Genetics maybe? Where’s it from?

Day 49 - Week 7 from soil

2 years ago

zenmaster

zenmaster Still no bud sites !!! She’s grown taller and I’ve defoliate the yellow leaves but so far still no bud sites or any sign of flowering I thought she would’ve started flowering by now so unsure what’s happening here :/

Mcmuzzy Light burn? Dont worry itll flip, or you can try flip it yourself just change the light hours

zenmaster

zenmaster @muzzy yeah I think there’s some light burn I don’t want to raise the light until the OGK is finished but that should be done next week then I’ll raise the light up, and I’m hoping she will go into flower soon but if not yeah I’ll have to flip the lights to 12-12 which is annoying

Day 42 - Week 6 from soil

2 years ago

zenmaster

zenmaster She’s definitely getting bigger and bigger and definitely the biggest plant I’ve had by far But no bud sites yet, normally my autos would have started budding by now but nothing ? She’s still growing taller and branching outwards Defoliation on lower leaves and plant bends added

Mcmuzzy Looks like its already pre flowering/stretching, no stress at all looks like itll be a beautiful girl

zenmaster

zenmaster Yeah she’s definitely stretching up but still no signs of budding yet hopefully she goes into flower soon by her self, thank you tho bro ✌🏽

Day 28 - Week 4 from soil

zenmaster

zenmaster I swear the growth on this girl each week is rapid ! She has grown outwards and upwards in height, fan leaves getting huge NO pistils yet !! Normally I’d notice a couple pistils by now but I’m hoping she just flowers late, she is an auto flower but this is the biggest auto I have had so far so I’m just hoping she doesn’t turn out to be a photo, just have to wait and see

46&2JustAheadOfMe Good to see you jumped back in! Stopping in to update today been a good while haha

zenmaster GOOD AND BAD NEWS so good news is NL is looking great ! Already working on her 2nd set of leaves and showing great signs of health Bad news is my PK isn’t seeming to grow, I’ve checked the taproot and it’s not growing, it’s a healthy white taproot but it’s just not growing, this is my 2nd PK to fail (from 2 different seedbanks) I’m going to give it one more week to see if it comes up if not I’ll have to buy a fvcking seed again this is really making me mad

FIRST SIGN OF LIFE

zenmaster

zenmaster The NL has popped up through soil, still has its shell but hopefully it’ll shed that tomorrow if not I’ll try to gently remove it Unfortunately the PK hasn’t changed yet or popped up but the taproot had only just cracked open so will give it some more time and fingers crossed she pops up soon !!! OGK in a separate grow log

Day: 0

+1

So I previously tried germinating both of the strains to go alone with my OG Kush (separate grow log) but both seeds failed germination so I had to get more seeds, I put them into water for 24 hours and they both sank, then put into tissue paper in a humidity zip lock bag for 48 hours and just checked now, the Northern Lights seed is perfect taproot looks long and healthy, but the Buddha Purple Kush only just cracked open, I have planted them both because I want to keep track of them together at the same time but I’m a little worried about the BPK because of the length of the taproot, I have planted it very close to the top of soil with a thin layer of dry soil covering it in hopes it grows through soon, I will update when they break through soil
